HAMILTON TOWNSHIP -- A former athletic facility in Monroe County will soon be a church.

World Mission Society of God Church bought the Pocono Dome near Sciota on November 3 for just over $2 million.

The church had been trying to buy the dome for months, at first wanting to turn it into a retreat. When that failed, it applied to use the facility as a church and got the go-ahead in August.

Zoning officials said the approval comes with several conditions regarding sewage disposal, fire and traffic safety, and off-street parking.

    Another hokey religion. I guess anyone can call themselves a church and get away with tax evasion.
    Zoning official’s, shame on you. You should be looking out for your residence who pay taxes, not these fly by nighters.
    I’m sure these church goers will not be taking up residence in the area.

    More lost revenue for Monroe County. These churches need to start paying their fair share of taxes. Render unto Caesar!
